Kruś started in 1989 as a family business, which it has remained to this day. The first owners, thanks to their determination, as well as ingenuity, produced plastic packaging on a machine of their own design in a rented garage. Over the years, the company has grown, investing in increasingly advanced machinery and new production halls, which today occupy a space of more than 4,000 sqm.
Thanks to its permanent development, the company now has a wide range of production capabilities, from bag sealing, to flexographic printing, to the production of high-quality multilayer film.
Constantly expanding its offer and improving its production processes, the company has gained a stable position on the market as a supplier of film and packaging. A team of trained professionals makes every effort to meet the ever-increasing demands, and a modern laboratory and machinery park ensure the highest quality products. As a company, we are specialists in our field with customer satisfaction as our highest goal.
Our additional advantage is that we have our own film recycling line, thanks to which all the waste is returned to production. It is also one of the company’s priorities that all products that leave the warehouse are 100% recycled.
